Small Web host setup??
Posted on 2004-11-17
I know this question has probably been asked a million times, but I haven't found a good concise answer yet.
I would like to set up a small web server at my company, which currently has 1 Server 2003 box and 1 Exchange Box (also server 2003). This 3rd machine will be to host a number of small traffic websites and an FTP server. I am looking for suggestions as to the best network structure for this setup. All of the existing machines are on a single subnet, and I'd assume that I would want the web server on a different subnet. I'd like to give a handful of users easy access to the webserver on which they would publish sites.
I have a zillion questions about the way this should work, so first I just think I need to get a generally acceptable network infrastructure in place. My questions then begin to move toward securing files etc. Does anyone know of a good resource which shows an acceptable way to set up the subnets etc. i know i know there also a zillion ways to do this too. it's why i'm asking. Many of you have probably set up similar networks and have had pretty good luck doing it a certain way. That's what I'm looking for!
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
